Setting Up Active Directory Domain Services in Windows 2008 R2 Server
Posted on 2012-04-03
Had a look at a few articles on here regarding this but am still a bit unsure.
I have run the active directory installation wizard and created a new domain,
does the FQDN have to be in lower case or does it not matter? I have used
mycompanydomain.lan is this the correct way. I am having a play around with
Windows Server 2008 R2 so in the forest function level do I select this option.
Also Should the Database , Log Files and SYSVOL be left with the default settings
and I've noticed that after you run the ADDS wizard the use the following dns
server address has been changed to 127.0.0.1 does this need changing back to
the address of the server? or will adding the DHCP server role do it.
Finally are there any other settings in this area that need adding/tweaking to ensure
everything works correctly.
